I am amazed by the forms and colours of the rocks. It is so impressive to see and this photo reflects exactly the beautiful natural colours. The colours varies from place to place.

We did a helicopter tour over the West Rim, and I captured the forms of the land. Love the shapes and forms.

Just a bit of sharpening a tad of adjustments in selective colour of red and yellow channel to bring it exactly as I’ve seen it, all in Camera Raw 6.2.
